Graham To Trump: Declare A National Emergency For The Border Wall

Well, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has had enough with Democrats unwilling to compromise on border security. After days of haggling, he’s finally come around to the idea that the president should declare a national emergency for the border wall. Yesterday, Trump had a meeting with Speaker Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), where he proposed re-opening the government in exchange for parts of his wall being built. The Democrats refused. They’re running the show in the House and letting the White House know. They’re not playing ball. And why should they? From their standpoint, they gained 40-seats in the 2018 elections on the promise that they would be a check on the Trump White House. Also, this is a party that simply doesn’t care about illegal immigration. They also appear to not care about illegal aliens murdering Americans.

Graham 2.0 has his moments, and this is one of them. Trump has said that if there were no deal on border security, he would most likely declare a national emergency in order to get it done. It would be no different than what Obama did on immigration, Obamacare, and his air campaign in Libya. Oh, and law scholar Jonathan Turley said that Trump absolutely has the power to declare a national emergency for the border wall. There are legal issues concerning where and how the funds are used, but it’s not “facially unconstitutional,” as some have argued.
